Can. Subdued aroma. Dark brown color. Smooth, slightly bitter taste. Similar to Guinness, with peaty flavor and faint carbonation, but tastes better overall than Guinness. Bitter finish. Better than average from a can, which is not saying much.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a caramel honey brown with a flourish of dirty, milky looking bubbles that meet a slight but creamy head of long lasting foam. Bubbles stick to the side of the glass and almost obscure a tiny bit of sediment in the beer. Nose is earthy and smells a bit like dirt at first. Then it becomes grassy and very herbal. It has a bit of sour form the mixture of grains. A flaked corn sweetness emerges as it warms and it becomes more pleasant as you drink it.
Taste follows the nose. Husky, herbal, earthy and with a bit of bitter in the finish. I looked hard for any metallic quality and could not find any. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy from the nitro and it is a surprise if you are not expecting it. I did feel that the beer was a bit thin but not really bland and the grass and herbal , although not fruity offered plenty of flavor and texture. Goes to the finish dry and with more grass and a moderate bitter. Husky earthy, grainy, grassy, pungent and herbal.

Not a bad English bitter at all. Pours like a Kilkenny, super creamy head. Golden-orange in colour. Aroma is slightly sweet, bit of malt. Taste is slightly bitter, some honey, hint of that ESB herbal taste, somewhat sweet. Goes down easier than most beers - incredibly smooth, friendly, and with almost zero cabonation.
Overall, a good choice. Not as punishing or herbalish as other bitters, comparable to Caffrey’s or Kilkenny cream ales.

0.5 l can from local supermarket with 4.6% alcohol. Orange brown colour with huge head. Really smooth and creamy taste. Pouring and tasting resembles lot a draught Guinness.But less malty since this is not stout (they call it pale ale). Besides barley this has also wheat.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
The most creamy stuff I’ve poured so far, huge englishhhhhh head.
Deep golden body with a cloud from the head in the upper part.
Scents; malt, bread, roasted berries, honey, maltose syrup.
Tastes malt, watered syrup, some hops in the background.
Smooth and at the same time odd - to me. Light bitter grainy creamy short finish.
Overall one thought strikes me, that this is some kind of hype.
500ml 4.6% can with ball inside b@K-market Kilpishalli Finland, brought back home.
Enjoyed@home a friday evening with druzhyna Annya [2014Jan24].

Wow, it’s basically creamier Budweiser. There is only one way to drink this beer: http://teamchug.com/boddingtons-pub-ale-review/
